Hi everyone! I’m so glad you found my page! My name is Anna (Smith) Helman and I am a farm wife, mom, step mom, owner of Windmill Lane Farm craft retreat, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, and lover of all things crafty, foody, and outdoorsy. If you can’t already tell, life is a little crazy, but I make time for Stampin’ Up because of the fulfillment I receive from this business.
I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in March 2014. I had previously been a consultant with a competing company, and I was so disappointed with their products, I began researching other companies. When I signed up with Stampin’ Up, I had NO IDEA I was making a decision that would be life changing in a wonderful way! As a result of my success during my first year, I was a recipient of the Rising Star award, an honor given to only six demonstrators at the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Convention. Since that time, I have achieved incentive trips to Newport Beach, California, and Thailand! I love Stampin’ Up! as a company, I love being able to provide for my family through my love of crafting, and I love meeting amazing people and building lifelong relationships in the process!
You’ll notice if you follow my blog that I try to post a variety of projects. I share a lot of cards, some scrapbooking ideas, and a few 3D projects as well. Occasionally I mix it up and share a recipe or some other tidbit of fun that I think might help someone out there! Regarding my stamping projects, I really enjoy trying out new techniques and using products in new ways. I try to challenge my creativity, and by doing this I hope to inspire your creativity as well!
I offer in person classes occasionally near Farmersville (close to Dayton), Ohio, and I’ll be starting soon at my new home in Ligonier in northern Indiana! Please contact me if you would like to join in. I also offer ways for you to get involved from a distance! Classes in the Mail are a great opportunity to get projects in the mail and exclusive video tutorials. If you’ve never tried stamping before and would like to learn, check out my Learn to Stamp videos. If you enjoy visiting my blog, please shop using my online Stampin’ Up! store. I’m really working to grow my business, and I am very appreciative of my customers and each Stampin’ Up! demonstrator on my team! I welcome your business and I’m here to help with anything I can!
If you have questions, ideas or suggestions, let me know! Feel free to contact me anytime!
I love your tutorial on the sleigh ride water color card. I plan to use in my October class! Thank you and congratulations!
I’m excited that I can inspire you and your customers too! We made this card at the class I had last night and they turned out sooo beautifully! All different, and all beautiful. I would love to see how yours turn out if you have a chance to send a picture!
I’m a fellow demonstrator and came across your blog. I loved your video, you did a great job. Love, Love the card. You explained it so well. Thank you!!!!
Thank you, I’m glad you liked it!
I, too, am a fellow demonstrator from Nebraska & found your gorgeous Sleigh Ride card on Pinterest. You have a great way with videos & make them so easy to understand. It’s almost like having you in my home in person! Thanks, Anna!
You’re welcome! I’m glad you’re finding them helpful! Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you with anything!
I found your email thru OSAT hop. What’s the sleigh people are talking about?
I’m also a new demonstrator, since Jan. 5th. I don’t have any business yet, but I do what I can and leave it in God’s hands. As you, I also love almost everything crafty. But, I’m always willing to learn something new. Thank you for sharing thru the hop.
I can’t seem to get into your YouTube for that wonderful staircase Christmas 2017 card. I am too a demonstrator. I would love to case that card for my classes. Would you please give the instructions or video on how you did it, thank you. It is so cute.
It’s now posted on my Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6y5c2Hzc-OGjee69NM6AqQ. I’ll email you as well.
Im a newbie from British Columbia. I used your Night of Navy Daisy Delight for a wedding card today. Love how it turned out!! Thanks for sharing.
I’m not sure I’m in the right place to comment, but I love the Meerkat stamp you’re giving away! thanks for the opportunity.
Yes you figured it out! Thanks Linda!
Just watched video on making multiple cards in 30 minutes and like your paper trimmer. Can you tell me how you set it up as you have or where I can get one?
LOVE your ability to get things across no matter the subject matter. It’s genuine, magical and all things synonymous. Keep up the great work & continue to bless us all with your crafting guidance. Like watching your helper too. She’s a sweetie & is obviously learning a lot of things she’ll carry with her forever. What a great fringe benefit!
We’re lucky to have you!
Thank you so much Mona!
I am a follower of your channel for about three months now and watch all the way from Australia. I recently signed up as a demonstrator and am in total awe of the way you craft and create and are able to use youtube as a platform to support your business. Just wanted to say job well done there. I too hope to be able to have the confidence to do the same one day.
Hi Cassandra…I’m finding lost comments from months ago! I really appreciate your kind words. I wish you the best as a demonstrator! You can absolutely do what I do, it just takes time and practice!
what is your address so I can buy the stamparatus with a check.
